In what might be a huge shock to superstar Rajinikanth’s millions of fans all over the world, it is reported that Rajini might ‘quit’ films after wrapping up the shoot of his upcoming film Kaala Karikaalan so as to give himself more time to indulge in politics.
Sources close to the superstar’s family say on condition of anonymity that the ‘man of the masses’, who has been ruling Kollywood for the past 40 years, is planning to quit acting in films after Kaala so as to indulge himself in politics in a full-fledged manner.
Many a time in the past, Rajini’s political entry had remained talking points; even now, the media is agog with what is up Rajini’s sleeve, especially after he issued a ‘war-cry’ to his fans to be ready to face the ‘war’ (polls) in future. He openly opposed Jayalalithaa during the 1996 Assembly polls which resulted in victory to the DMK-led opposition combine including TMC.
Now that Jayalalithaa has expired and Karunanidhi’s health is falling, Rajini appears to be gearing himself up to fill the void in the State’s politics and has been consulting with a cross-section of journalists, media barons, politicians, friends and others. As Rajini has a better understanding about the murky world of politics now, it is said that he would take a full-fledged plunge into politics after wrapping up Kaala!
